Hunger burns in Connie Bences' soul - she craves the blood of her vampire lover, Rurik - but it's not satisfying her needs anymore. It's driving her insane. Desperate to find help, Rurik brings her to Rio De Janeiro where Tane rules the vampire nation.
The back-stabbing vampire almost killed her and Rurik when they'd first met, then used them to obtain his crown. She would rather stake him, but the small drop of Nosferatu blood he'd forced her to drink in Budapest is blooming into a bond, one which ties her life to his. One he won't hesitate to manipulate.
He admits to binding her so Rurik would have to remain at his side, but their timing couldn't be any worse. The betrayer finds himself betrayed. Tane's rule is in upheaval and he's forced to place his trust in two people who owe him no allegiance - her and Rurik. In the middle of a power struggle, Connie fights to keep her lover, but didn't plan on Tane slipping into her heart.

Thoroughly caught, for me it's a winner
I know this book well, though this is my first time listening to it. For me the narration cranked up the tension in the book and brought to life some of the smaller characters. I felt like I lived the tale quite vividly at times!
There are a few scenes that spring to mind. Heat wise the last sex scene is very erotic. I love the humour when Rabbit meets her first hairy werewolf. lol I adore the scene where Rabbit falls asleep on Tane and some of the vividly described torture scenes are memorable too.
I think that the narration strengthened the differences in the smaller characters and also helped crank up the tension to fever pitch at times
Connie's scenes with Belle were sweet, a nice contrast.
I found Lauren Sweet's accent difficult to handle initially as it over-rode the story for me until I got used to it.
